Dies Academicus will be held on Tuesday, August 21, from 9:00-10:15 a.m., and coffee and doughnuts will be available beginning at 8:15 a.m. in the McShea Activities Center (MAC). This event is held at the beginning of each semester as an opportunity for faculty members to socialize and engage in an intellectual discussion.
The article chosen by DeSales division heads as a catalyst for this semester’s discussion is “What the Best College Student Did” by Dr. Ken Bain, published by Harvard University Press, August 2012. Fr. Peter Leonard, dean of graduate education, will moderate the discussion.
You may access the article at http://hetl.org/2012/01/17/what-the-best-college-teachers-do/ as well as an excerpt from Wall Street Journal:http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702303740704577522882725680396.html.
